Colt McAlister holds the key to the survival of the human race. It’s in his blood, literally. To train, Colt is sent to CHAOS Military Academy to train in how to defend earth from alien invaders. But someone wants Colt dead before he can step forward and fulfill his destiny.
I really enjoyed book one, Invasion. Alienation didn’t grip me quite as much, though it was still a fun story. The middle book in a trilogy, it suffered from not being able to reveal too much before that final book and left me with a lot of questions, which was likely the goal.
Middle grade boys will not care. The book starts out with a sweet comic book prologue and ends with cool cartoon illustrations of all the characters. My son is totally hooked. And there are some awesome fight scenes in this story, simulated for school and real as the bad guys try and catch Colt. There are also creepy alien shape shifters around every corner. I have no doubt that book three will be awesome as Colt fulfills his calling to save the world. Recommended especially for male readers who love comic books and action adventure stories.
